I decide to get henna'ed. I guess it's pretty. I twirl my flower finger in the air to try to escalate the drying time. I still end up getting the chocolatey goo all over my sweatshirt. Men walk by me with henna scorpions on their biceps. Maybe I should have gone that route.
On day two I was thinking I should have gone no route. The henna ended up staining my hand orange and my finger looked like I had dipped it in coffee and swirled it around.
On day 4 it was still there.
I am so branded as a tourist.
TIP: Your henna will stay for several days. Go to
a nice place that does it right and uses the good stuff.
